    HO scale parquet flooring... and it looks real!

    Just when you think you've seen some extraordinary modeling, Candy comes along and kicks it up another notch!

    As said by Pogo (Walt Kelly's Pogofenokee Swamp Possum) some sixty years ago, "Sometimes the humor in this comic strip eludes me."

    You learn something every day...

    Parquet used to have feathers! Now they're used for flooring. No wonder you don't see the huge flocks of parquets going down south for the winter any more...:(

    :D
